A former Fort Bend County Sheriff’s jailer has been accused of and arrested for impersonating a public servant.
Jersey Village police arrested a man, who has been identified as John Currie, 35, after they received a report of an assault.
According to reports, a 16 year old teen told police he had been assaulted near the intersection of Delozier and St. Helier after he honked his car horn at a truck.
According to authorities, after the teen honked, Currie got out of his truck and ordered the teen to the ground at gunpoint. Court records indicate that Currie identified himself to the teen as a police officer as he was arresting him. In reality, Currie was not a Jersey Village police officer and had only served as a jailer for Fort Bend County for a short time in 2006.
Currie has been released on bond on pending charges of aggravated assault and impersonating a public servant.
